RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA
Hail Saint Mary % s
Adapted from Margaret Mason Toung, 1899
TX a grove of stately oak trees,
-*- Where tlic sunjight lies,
Stands Saint Mary's true and noble
'Neath the Southern skies.
Far and wide, oil sound her praises.
Chorus full and free,
Hail, Saint Mary's Alma Mater,
Hail, all hail to thee !
Well we love the little chapel,
Ever hold it dear;
Hear the echoes id' the music,
Rising soft and clear.
Far and wide, etc.
There the ivy and the roses
Climb the old stone wall,
There the sweet, enticing bird notes
Sound their magic call.
Far and wide, etc.
And the bonds of friendship strengthen.
As her beauties charm;
We grow close to Alma Mater,
Trust her guiding arm.
Far and wide, etc.
Many years ago the stage coach came to St. Mary's each year. But
gradually the trips became fewer and fewer until soon there were none
Last year our "Stage Coach." took up its annual journey once again, this
time in the form of a book. The 1926 trip of the "Stage Coach" will be
successful if it carries away with each one of us such pleasant memories
that we will often return to our St. Mary's and see future "Stage Coaches"
and the passengers they will carry.
\ I Hi appreciate all you have done for the advance-
ment of St. Mary's, yet honoring her traditions;
we are encouraged by your inspiring personality; we
strive to live up to your ideals; we admire you as a
woman; we love you as a friend; therefore, we the
Senior Class of ninetee.n-twenty-six, in behalf of the
Student Body, do dedicate this the twenty-eighth year-
book of St. Mary's
Miss Sara Clarke Turner
Tune: "Believe Me, If All Those Endearing Young Charms"
QT. MARY'S! "Wherever thy daughters may be
k -' They love thy high praises to sing,
And to tell of thy beauties of campus and tree
Around which sweet memories cling;
They may wander afar; out of reach of thy name
Afar out of sight of thy grove.
But the thought of Saint Mary's aye kindles a flame
Of sweet recollections and love.
Beloved Saint Mary's ! How great is our debt !
Thou hast cared for thy daughters full well ;
They can never thy happy instructions forget,
Nor fail of thy virtues to tell.
The love that they feel is a heritage pure;
An experience wholesome and sweet.
Through fast rolling years it will grow am
Be a lamp and a guide to their feet.
May the future unite all the good of the past
With the best that new knowledge can bring.
Ever onward and upward thy course ! to the last
Be thou steadfast in every good thing.
Generations to come may thy fair daughters still
Fondly think on thy halls and thy grove,
Ami carry thy teachings o'er woodland and hill
Of earnestness, wisdom and love.

liu Day Pupil
Miir inn is not only tlie beauty (if our class,
luii she has bruins too — witness the parties and
the minstrel she has "put over'' this year. Who
but Marion could have guided the Seniors through
the joys and trials of Senior Year and kept the
warm love and friendship of each and every one
of them? Her grace and charm have made her
a necessary a del it inn to all Colonial Balls and
May Days and her fun-loving, sweet disposition
and Charming personality have made her an in-
dispensable fa. 'lot- to both girls and faculty in
Mrs. Elizabeth B. Lawrence
Mrs. Lawrence is the honorary member of the
Class of ,- 26. The Class of '26 considers that it
is they, rather than Mrs. Lawrence, who are
honored. For many years she has had the best
interests of Saint Mary's at heart, and this year
the Seniors have been fortunate in bavins her
special interest. She is constantly thinking of and
acting for the happiness of others and never seems
to tire of doing good for every one. She is truly
"energetic, benevolent, and loyal,"
Alicia Lamar Plait
The E, A. P.'s couldn't have a better President
than "Cuba" nor is there any girl who has more
deserved the honor of "Chief Marshal." She has
a wonderful talent for essay and poetry writing,
but "Cuba" does not spend all of her time im-
proving her knowledge. She is always ready to
laugh at Ruth's jokes or go for a walk on the
campus; and we have a faint recollection of having
seen her do acrobatic stunts on the tire escape
between "third floor" and the second floor of
"Syllyl Sylly! Come here and show me how to
do this I" Her name doesn't show it, but she is
our pride and joy, to say nothing of salvation,
efficiency personified. But. don't think she's one
of these coldblooded, "experts." Far from it,
Indeed, she is as efficient a ringleader of devil-
ment as she is Editor of the Stage Coach.
Any hour of the day (or night) you can detect
"that Pendleton child" in the midst of most any-
thing. And whatll we do with our troubles when
Sylly's in Manila.
Frances Olivia Mobley
"The Most Lovable" — No one begrudges "V V"
this honor, for she has certainly shown us that
it was conferred on the right person.
The Seniors are all glad that slie decided to
come back and graduate with us — so is "V V,"
for her future lias been partially decided this
year. Can you imagine " V V in a white cap
and apron waiting mi tables? Well — that's her
ambition, any way. Sh-h-h, we expect some gal-
lant guest will tip her with a house and lot.
Carolyn Cleave Shore
Another proof of Senior versatility comes to
the front when we introduce "C-Shore." Such
a seamstress! If she fulfills all the promises she
lias b i forced to make to sew for Senior
trousseaus, she will have her hands full — maybe I
We will always remember the delicious oranges
and alligator ('don't get frightened) uears that
she lias been showered with in Senior Hall.
She has been a loyal member of the class of '26,
one we have all been glad to own.
When you see curly headed, daintily dressed
Siil lie stepping off down town you envy her, but
you try to console yourself by saying : "Well,
any one as pretty as that can't have brains." But
she has, and uses them, as is evidenced by the
heavy con rse she carries. She's not only pretty
and sweet, but while you may not believe this,
she even looks graceful while doing the "Charles-
ton." And is she popular '. Well — -just mention
Sallie Lei nster anywhere from Kalamazoo, to
TimbuctOO, and watch (he boys sit up and take
Rt tii Loaring Clark
"Some one practicing the scales?" No, just
thrills of laughter heard from Senior Hall. Ruth
must be pursued by a bear. But it's hardly
necessary to tell about Ifulli's sense of humor,
for we can't imagine any one whose optimistic
and genial disposition is more pronounced. She
is conscientious too and honorably upholds the
responsibility of her office. She's always on I he
••pnl under two conditions: When you need a
friend (a mighty good time to have a person
appear), and when "food" is whispered (the time
WO all assemble).
Mary Rouena Nicolson
"Where's Mary Nic? I've worked on the
problem for an hour" (apt to be heard from
almost any distressed voice) ; and no matter who
it is, Mary Nic is always ready to come to the
rescue. Woe be unto a class with no "math
shark" like ours. In spite of her dislike for
certain (k)niglll errants, who persist in turning
on lights and leaving doors open, we all think of
Mary Nic as a good friend,
The Seniors found an unexpected pleasure wait-
ing to "add spice lo life" when they returned to
school in the fall and found "Mopsa." one of our
three new Seniors. But she was not consider
"new" very long, for she entered whole-heartedly
of the activities of the class.
"Mopsa" once had hopes of being an actress or
an author, but, alas! — in spite of Miss Turner's
excellent teaching in English E and Englisil N,
as well as her opinions on the subject, we fear
doomed io be
Louise Terrell Allen
Louise holds an S. M. S. and is there any
wonder? "When the good old Sigmas fall in line"
she is always in the lead, and the Sigmas are
proud of their president. When we turn to
statistics we see that she is our "Most Stylish ;"
and, if you don't believe Louise is a graceful
dancer, just gaze through the parlor window sonic
evening. Besides this, Louise has carried as
many as eight courses at one time (not so easy) ;
and has made friends throughout the entire
Juliettk H. Smith
"Now, Miss Smith, give us an example of this
in Scotland Neck" (time any one of Mr. Stone s
Classes). The fact that Juliette is from the mucb-
talked-of Scotland Neck, would make her
prominent. We think we could all profit by
Juliette's conscientiousness and her studious dis-
position. Besides these virtues, she is always
cheerful and accomodating and ready to offer any
service she can. We could never have lived our
Senior year as happily without her. and we leave
her with the assurance that Romeo is watting.
Kat Lyon — What an excellent chance for some
puns. But we won't attempt any because we
know Kat is clever enough to get even with us.
When we think of her lovable and accomodating
disposition, her ready wit. splendid dancing, and
her exceptional dramatic ability, we don't wonder
that she is considered our "Most Attractive."
But the best thing about Kat is that -she doesn't
have to depend upon being attractive. She has
real ability — if you don't believe it just look at
the way she's led the Sisruia Lambda's to victory.
Irma I. Edmonson
May we present another loyal "Sigma born
and a Sigma bred and when she dies. . . ."
Well, she'll then be "Sigma Spirit." The E. A. P.'s
may thank their stars that the Sigma Lambda's
haven't found Irma's talent for debating, for the
results might have been disastrous! Irma has
another admirable trait, for she reminds us of
the cockleburr who says that if he's your friend.
"hell stick to you until the end."
Maky Margaret Willis
Mary Margaret is certainly a bird! Now don't
get excited — we mean a song bird. We don't know
what the E. A. P.'s or the Church School Service
League would ever have done without her voice,
and the Seniors never would have passed English
X without her contribution to the midnight
Matches — no, it wasn't an alarm clock ! But,
exclusive of this, we couldn't have gotten along
without Mary Margaret, for she's a good friend
and one of the most lovable of the Seniors.
Virginia Joye McCuen
Last year brought "Joye" to the school both in
name and con notation — a joy which we would
all miss. Joye's versatility ranges from doing the
"Charleston" to presiding over the Church School
Service League. In both, she is most capable,
which only proves that she knows well the old
] ih rase, "There's a time to work and a time to
play." But with all her interests, Joye has always
time to be helpful and accomodating — if you don't
believe Joye is just about as fine as they make 'em,
just ask "Lady."
"Where's Dot? — she'll play for us." We wonder
what we would do if we didn't have Dot to play
for our class songs and, for our dances ( f ) in
gym. Dot has another enviable trait. She is ack-
nowledged the tidiest girl in Senior Hall, and we
know this when we see how carefully she keeps
her room, not to mention her dainty clothes.
Even if it weren't for these accomplishments, Dot
would he an indispensable mem her of our class,
for she lias a marvelous disposition that has en-
dea red h e r to us all .
MARtiARKT S.MKDES ROSK
Margaret was the most envied Senior in school
the day after Thanksgiving. Who but she would
have gotten left in Chapel Hill Thanksgiving
night at the Co-ed house.' — and she tried to say
she was so worried that she didn't enjoy it '.
Besides being naturally sweet and smart, Margarei
hus other great claims to distinction. She's the
great-granddaughter of the founder of our school
(which fact alone would make her an outstanding
character) ; she looks almost exactly like Colleen
Moore ; and her ukelele playing is the delight of
Olive Lillian Jordan
Olive has a reputation we'd all like to have —
A very quiet gir] who always obeys rules. Well —
we won't go into details about all the midniirht
feasts she's been hostess to ; some one might be
disillusioned if we did. But, really, we're all
glad to know that Olive is full of fun. Beside*
having a serious side to her nature. A happy dis-
position always makes a home so much brighter,
but — Sh-h-h, editors mustn't publish all they
(We apologize for the first descriptive adjective
but it was so appropriate that we couldn't resist
the temptation. ) We always think of Katherine
as being exceptionally reliable, and she never
fails to help us out of a tight place. For example,
we remember how she pulled Sylbert out of the
hall locker — not to mention her wonderful ability
for creating public opinion on East Wine.
Katherine says she's going to be an editor. We
wish to add. "a good one," and shall expect to read
her editorials with great interest.
Ann de Treville Lawrence
Besides being an angel (once), Ann has the
distinction of having stored in her memory "ob-
servations of one of the oldest inhabitant-.
She has almost become one of the traditions of
Saint Mary's — a tradition of which Saint Mary's
is proud. She has been exceptionally conscientious
as President of the Altar Guild, never sparing her
efforts to beautify the chapel. Of course we all
love our school, but none of us can love it quite
as much as Ann does, and certainly no one of
us could be more loyal.
"No, I can't. I have to study" — says Dotty,
taking an English novel and curling on the bed
to snooze I She is forever and eternally occupied.
But this is because of her artistic temperament.
Any time you see some sheets of art paper coming
down the ball, you know Dot is hidden somewhere
in their folds. " But, in spite of her constant in-
dustry. Dot has lots of fun. Always giggling
about something, or quoting one of. Miss Fenner>
droll stories, she is the delight of any one who
happens to be near.
Martha Dahney Jones
"Martha Dabney, you do it, you're the young-
est" — and the surprising thing is that this infant
always does it gladly. She lias made a remarkable
record and we feel duly proud of the youngest
member of our class. The College Club, so
loyally defended by her in the E. A. P. Model
Meeting, could never have been so progressive
without her; the Seniors would have drowned in
the depths of despair but for her cheer; and the
N. U. N. Club renders her a vote of thanks as
the efficient ■"Custodian of the Veils."
Margaret Randolph Bullitt
"Bullitt, here's another cut for you." Oh
dear, "I'm getting cuts on all sides 1" Don't
worry, fond readers, the only cuts that our dear
friend "Bullitt" gets are "ad cuts" — for nobody
could cut "Bullitt," who is always ever ready to
help us all. She is clever, good in athletics and
a mighty sweet girl, even if she is red headed.
There is just one "Bullitt'' and we are sorry that
the oncoming Senior class is not to have her,
but we are glad that she is one of ns.
FRANCES SH RIVER SaNSBLRY
"Oh, she's over in the Library working on her
English N notebook."
Result ? — -We all wish we had been, too, when
grades are posted. But Frances doesn't spend nil
of her time getting up notebooks. She is the
very efficient proctor of Senior Hall ("don't laugh,
please, this a very serious matter," says Mr.
Stone), and has been of great help in suppressing
unearthly screams in the Chapel line! The STAGE
Coach is very grateful to her for the calendar
which she contributed, and for other daily (?)
We are all sorry that "Bonnie" failed to return
after Christmas. She was with us for only a few
months, but even in that short time she won a
place in our hearts. She was immediately recog-
nized as one of the most lovable girls in the class
and all the Seniors were proud of her. Besides
being so lovable, "Ponnie" was a splendid student.
Can you imagine a new student who can spend
two or three weeks in the infirmary and get on
the lion or roll all the same ? She did.
"Will any Senior chaperone me to town ?"
Whenever you hear that plaintive cry you know
that Alice has another customer. She is always
willing to take any one calling or to town, even
during exam. week. Alice's habit of going out
before an English N test, has been the envy of
more than one Senior, but when we realize how
accomodating she is and how many girls she has
obliged, we feel justly proud of her.
"Tootle" : How did you know I was in here?
Grace: Oh, I heard you!
"Tootie:" Tee hee.
Grace: Yes, that's just what I heard.
Well (apologies to Mr. Stone) who wouldn't
"Tee hee" if they had come out of Exams, with
her flying colors? "Tootie's" devotion to her
hooks just after the Christmas vacation certainly
produced excellent results — at least 90 per cent
on all of her Exams.! Of course we're proud of
this fact but, in spite of it, she is a very valuable
member of the class.
Alice Amoret Dewar
Here! there! everywhere! Who? Why Alice,
of course. Whether in Senior Hall, the P. O. or
"on class," she is the same bright, and clever girl.
Her bits of dry humor will long be remembered
by all who have known her — who could forget it '.
At times she hurls sarcasm at us fast and furious-
ly, but then, it being Alice, we let it go by! ? I ?
Since it is a custom to say something serious
about our Senior wonder (and since she is the
Biographical Editor) here goes — Alice is success-
fully carrying eight subjects. Serious? Yes,
but not in all particulars!
Now that we have Sara we've often wondered
what we used to do without her happy disposition,
her ability to see the funny side of everything,
and her pleasant acquiescence in everything that
is asked of her. We envy her good steady grades
and she makes them without studying too! When
some one asked her why she wasn't worried and
studying for exams she said, "what's the use ?"
turned over and went to sleep, and then pro-
ceeded to get nothing under SO on a single
Grace Pennington Martin
"Grace, will you read your discussion of (what-
ever the lesson is about)? says Miss Turner; and.
"Grace, is your Stage Coach material ready?"
and, "Grace, the Muse is due tomorrow .'" and,
"Grace, will you dance with me?" Grace being
Miss Turner's "pride and joy," the literary editor
of the Stage Coach, the editor of the Mime,
the best dancer in school, and one of the most
attractive girls, never fails to do everything she is
asked with the greatest ease while leaving the
questioner in an uproar of laughter.
Annie Battle Miller
"By cracky, spiffily, spoo" — here comes Annie
Battle. "Children should be seen and not heard,"
but — oh I there's an exception to every rule (al-
though Mr. Stone thinks even Annte:""Batth-
shouldn't be excegtjed-)-r — "Annie Battle is always
just liu billing over with fun and has proved a
bright spot on a good many cloudy days, She
has a wonderful mind, especially for Sociology,
and often flusters Mr. Stone by her ceaseless flow
of questions and answers. No one will ever be
in the depths of despair while she's around
Laura Lloyd Crudup
"She'll have .1 hard time shooting that goal —
Lady' i.s guarding her," And whoever "she" is
certainly has trouble, for "Lady" is a Sigma
Besides basketball, "Lady" has another absorb-
ing interest. Who is there who doesn't know
"John Hod die" — from his college honors to his
breakfast.' If vou don't you don't know "Lady"
"Lady" is a good friend (ask Joyce), a con-
scientious student, and in every way, a necessity
to the class. But tliere is one time when "Lady"
is silent — don't expect her to say anything before
she has wnshed her face!
Margaret Ellen Lester
All the Seniors turn green with envy at mail
time 'cause no matter whether it's as balmy
as May or as cold as January, Butterfly always
lias her mail — and most of the time — not one
letter, but two or three.
If you want to find the very best "eats" in
Senior Hall, go to Butterfly's room; and if
you're looking for a real good looking Senior,
search for "Butterfly." She's right there with
the looks every time.
Although Celeste prides herself on saying exactly
what she thinks, she never makes enemies. She's
full of fun, too, for if you bear shouts of laughter
in East Rock, it's sure to lie Celeste telling some
of her droll stories. If you see a tall, strikingly
dressed Senior wandering toward the city, you
may know it's Celeste, for she's always ready for
a good time, But if you sometimes see a for-
bidden light shining through her transom about
twelve, you may know Celeste is studying — and
probably studying Math!
Elizabeth J. Thornton
.hist ask: "Lib. ran you Ml me the date of" —
(anything you want to know ) , or, "Lib, tell me,
who wrote the Epistle to the Hebrews '" and Lib
can and will supply the desired information. Not
only when you need information is Lib a help,
but "when a feller needs a friend" there's one to
be found in her. When she's not busy studying
or just being a good friend she's being Miss
Davis's prize star in the Dramatic Club and carry-
ing off all the honors in plays.
May we present another "Day Student" I
Susan has been one of our three boasted Raleigh
girls. She has shown a commendable interest
in all of her classes, as well as other activities
of the school. Her ability to ask "leading
questions" in class has "led" a good many of the
Seniors into deep water, from which she herself

Choice Answers to Selected Questions
on Senior Exams.
1. Tell what you know of the development, characteristics, and contribution to life
of the hysterical novel. Write a well constructed paragraph.
There are four important influences in the development of the hysterical novel. In
order of their importance they are: transitional sentences; topic sentences; logical
arrangement of material; and important dates (all of 'em).
Now turn we to the characteristics. The hysterical novel is characterized by two
unique traits: lights after ten p.m., and grades ranging from 50 to 69 per cent.
Now are we contributing. The main contributions of this important and widely known
novel are: Monday detention, and additions to the restriction list. For fear of creating
too much emotion, a more detailed study of this class of the novel is omitted.
IV. Bible N
Tell briefly, what you know about the following:
(a) The Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Hebrews: The three things that it is;
(b) Eschatalogical: He disappeared one stormy night — we suspect Miss Cobb (she
(c) Ephesians: A unanimous circular letter.
(d) Mark: A dog has one more tail than no dog — no dog has nine tails — therefore a

Our Song to You
Our year with you has been a song,
A song of many parts.
Its laughing treble strains are gay
And ripple on from day to day;
The sadder tones that fill our hearts
Are lit with memories, smiles and tears —
The melodies of other years,
The harmonies of song.
Throughout our song there is a theme
That binds the parts in one,
St. Mary's columns white and strong,
And Friendship's beauteous, glorious song.
The oak trees gleaming in the sun,
The Chapel gray, the cross on high.
Echoing footsteps, whispered sigh
Are woven through our theme.
The melodies of friendship sing
And pulsate in our song,
For rising breezes in their flight
Around the fluted columns white
Its sweetness will prolong.
The hours of labor and of fun
The struggles, and the victories won
The dearest memories bring.
The lingering strains now fade away
And now our song must end.
The echoes vibrate on the breeze
And tremble through the tall oak trees
And sing to every friend —
"Forget the discords of our song,
Remember friendships true and strong,
For we must go away."
The History of the Class of '26
THE road to knowledge has many paths leading into it and on each one of these
paths have the members of the class traveled until they have met their fellow class-
mates and gone on with them. Finally the road branches again and it is then that each
girl must choose her road and travel it alone.
The class of '26 has a long history. It began in 1013 when Sylbert Pendleton ventured
ou her path under the careful guidance of Miss Katie. The next girl to set out on thin
journey was Ann Lawrence who began in 1917. These two have the honor and privilege
of being the last who started in the grades under Miss Katie and have gone through to
Dorothy Dougherty joined them as a baby preplet in the fall of '21. Added to these
three in '22-23 were Margaret Ellen Lester and Marion Lee as Freshmen with Katherine
Morris as president, and Alicia Piatt and Mary Margaret Willis as preps.
At the end of each year as the Seniors turned the bend in the road and were lost to
sight, our hearts have beat fast with mingled sorrow and joy. The Seniors had left us.
but were we not another league on our way? We were reluctant to let them go but we
did not realize that it was the first bitter taste of our last parting when we too should
be lost from view on the road to knowledge.
The next year we were Sophomores and Martha Everett, was our president. More
girls joined us to make our travel happier; they were Dorothy Beacham, Ruth Loaring
Clark, Katherine Lyon and Annie Battle Miller. At the same time in the Freshman class
were Louise Allen, Laura Crudup, Louisa Lee and Juliette Smith. It was a happy year
and we thought ourselves extremely important being the sister class of the Seniors.
At the end of the year we still walked on; we saw our sister class disappear around the
bend but our hearts lightened at the thought of one more league gone.
The road was broadening with every step and despite dust and rain more girls joined
us. The Fall of 1924 dawned full of expectancy and hope. All the old Juniors, were
delighted to welcome the new Juniors and conditional Juniors, for these were divided.
Mary Mutter Moore was president and Miss Ruef our class adviser; under the leadership
of these two we completed a year of hard work brightened by many joys such as the
Many valuable members of the class were added this year — our attractive Sallie
Leinster, stylish Alice Towers, domestic Cleave Shore, Celeste Hubbard and Alice
Dewar — full of spirit, our good sport — Irma Edmonson, artistic Joye McCuen and Susan
Womble. Elizabeth Thornton with her dramatic talent, Margaret Bullitt — brilliant in
more ways than one, literary Katherine Hosmer. Olive Jordan with her sweet disposition,
versatile Grace Martin, charming Olivia Mobley, Mary Nicolson and her mathematical
brains I for which she is greatly envied), lovable Frances Sansbury, Margaret Rose
full of humor, and last — and least in years — Martha Dabney Jones, tilled with the
light heartedness of youth, but intelligence of years.
In gaiety we walked along the road and did not once realize what an amount of
ground we were covering until the Junior-Senior Banquet towards which we had worked
all year finally came. The school party was the saddest thing in the year for Miss
Morgan was to leave us and it was at this party that we were to bid her farewell. Our
hearts were filled with the realization of how much we loved her and how much she had
meant and would always mean to us. Then, before we knew it came class day and the
daisy chain — and then we saw one more Senior class disappear around the bend in the
road. Our hearts sank — we were Seniors ourselves! What an unbelievable thing, that
we had but one league more to travel and we, too, would turn the bend in the road
The Fall of 1925 — a dream realized! Senior Hall reached! Marion Lee was our
president and Miss Ruef our adviser. Miss Albertson came to be the beloved friend and
adviser of us all. Even this near the end girls joined us as we walked along. Louisa
Harrison, Musette Kitchin, Sara Purrington. and Margaret "Wilson immediately entered
into every thing. Mrs. Samuel Lawrence was chosen an honorary member and Mr. Stone
At the end of a month we were all very much surprised to find that we did not
feel half so important as the other Seniors had seemed to us. It was not until we
received our class rings in December that we really felt that we were Seniors. Time went
so swiftly with its many thrilling events of which some were the Senior Party to the
Sophomores — an evening in an Apache Den — the Senior plays — Dickens's "Christmas
Carol" and "The Nativity," which, though long expected, were given in six hours notice
when school was so suddenly broken up for the holidays. After the plays the Seniors
carolled but every body missed the long-looked-for Christmas tree.
After Christmas our sister class returned our courtesy with a party. Also Mr. and
Mrs. Way gave us a party. When the Sewanee Glee club came (a very big event) Mrs.
Lawrence gave a tea to the Glee Club members and the Senior Class. Then came Spring
holidays, Easter, and finally the Banquet. How we did gloat over seeing the Juniors
work! Now Commencement is here.
Commencement — what a world of different meanings it includes. The realization of it
hursts upon us — our walk is scarcely begun; the road has branched again and we can no
longer tread it together; we must travel alone; we are no longer Seniors for we too
have turned the bend — we are alumna?!
Last W ill and Testament of the Senior Class
of St. Mary's School
Raleigh, N. C, June 1926
WE, the Senior Class of St. Mary's School, in the city of Raleigh, the county of
Wake and the State of North Carolina, on this, the thirty-first day of May in
the year of our Lord 1926, being of supposedly sound and sane mind, in spite of the
declaration of various faculty members having a strong belief to the contrary, do, both
individually and collectively, will and bequeath several of our most vahied possessions
to divers and sundry members of the incoming Senior Class of our beloved school. We
hope that with the aid of these gifts they may show their ability by passing through the
coming year as brilliantly as we have done. We further hope that all students — no,
pupils, will realize just how great a sacrifice we are making, and so will ponder
diligently upon such benefits as we, in our graciousness, have condescended to bequeath.
Article I. I, Marion Lee, do will and bequeath my position as President of the
Senior Class to some lucky successor, hoping that with this gift will come also my
great dramatic ability as demonstrated particularly in tableaus.
Art. II. I, Sara Leinster, with joy and thanksgiving, do leave to the treasurer of
the Senior Class of '27 my little book entitled "How to start collecting dues from the
Seniors, how to produce a good sob-story effect to obtain them, and. finally as a last resort,
how to extricate the necessary funds from the combination-locked closets."
Art. III. We, Susan Womble, Susan Jolly, and our fellow day-pupil. Musette
Kitchin, do leave to any of our town successors, our uninterrupted attendance at
classes the twenty school days in each month, knowing that it makes a much better
impression to come when you should than to come when you want to.
Art. IV. We, the Seniors inhabiting Senior Hall in East Rock, commonly called
"Senior Hall's appendix," do warn the members of the Senior Class to come, not to
inhabit the Rock unless absolutely unavoidable — why? because the sitting-up-facilities
are decidedly not all they might be.
Art. V. I, Grace Pennington Martin, in willing my job. it can't be called a position,
of Editor-in-Chief of the St. Mary's Muse to the one who allowed herself to be so imposed
upon, leave with it a great deal of sympathy, but, also, a great deal of encouragement.
It really is lots of fun after all.
Art. VI. I. Sylbert Pendleton, commonly called "Sylly," do leave to the Editor-in-
Chief of the Stage Coach my printed slips for calling a "meeting of the Stack Coach
staff in Miss Lee's Business Room," with a heart felt warning not to take the matter
of the editorship too seriously. There are plenty of people to whom you can easily
"pass the buck."
Art. VII. We, the collective members of the Senior Class dwelling on the upper hall
of the far-famed "Senior Hall," do exhort our successors to break, smash and com-
pletely annihilate any and all victrola records belonging to those members of the class
on the lower floor. Self-preservation will necessitate this step eventually — so why
Art. VIII. I, Ann de Treville Lawrence do will my ability to see jokes to Mary Muse,
hoping that with constant practice she will improve in this art as much as I have.
Art. IX. We, the downstairs members of the class of '26, do beg and beseech our
successors to study diligently the art of "tripping the light fantastic toe" that all the
masters of this art may not dwell in the higher region of their Senior Hall as ours do.
Art. X. We. Joye McCuen and Dorothy Beacham. do leave our congeniallity as
roommates to the next year's occupants of Senior Hall. The outward view is most
conducive to good fellowship we assure you.
Art. XI. I. "W" Mobley, do leave to Miss Jennie Trotter the secret of my Titian
locks with the hope that this secret will save her many tears and disappointments caused
by the failure of "Golden Glint."
Aut. XII. I, Margaret Randolph Bullitt, do leave my deliberate manner of articulatinn

Signed and sealed by me on this 31st day of May, 1926.
Witnessed by F. Saksbtox Rl T " LoARIX(i Clakk. Testator
I WAS the only spirit to cross the Styx that memorable June night. Charon was
very morose and not at all talkative and I was unusually lonesome. On landing
I was sadly looking around to see what I should do first, when a guide came to me and
said, "Your late is already decided. You may stay here in Hades three days and then
you go below the river Styx, below everything and away from all hope." Since this
was to be my late I decided to see everything that I possibly could in that place of
departed spirits. Alter wandering around I found out that I wasn't a stranger there.
I was surprised to leel the pangs of hunger and so I made an effort to find some food.
Food, however, became my secondary thought when I saw that the spirits who served
as waitresses were Ann Lawrence, Alice Dewar, Susan Jolly, and Margaret Wilson.
After surviving so much experience as Juniors at St. Mary's, they continued their
vocation in Yellowstone Park. They had become so accustomed to their duties that
they still flitted about serving and collecting tips. As I was musing over my nectar
I was startled to see some other of my classmates.
There were Annie Battle Miller and Tootie Lee in the extreme front row of chorus
girls. Annie Battle occassionally forgot herself, and began to clog dance but as a
rule Tootie could, by raising her voice in a song remind her of wiiat she should do.
There was an extremely graceful girl in connection with these dancers who gave about
three solos and who received a great deal of applause. As I kept watching her I saw
a strong resemblance to Grace Martin. Upon asking, I found that it was Grace and
that she was the leading soloist dancer. However, my informers told me that she
was a little eccentric and that the only kind of music she would have was the
mouth organ played by Martha Jones.
I went out into the cool air of night and wandered on down a path brilliantly lighted
by glaring torches. I saw a tall yet slightly stooped figure in front of me. Could
it be? Yes, it was Katherine Hosmer. She still carried books under her arm and
frowned slightly while talking. From our conversation I found out that she had been a
successful editor of an excellent Florida paper, and that paper was the "Fort Myers
Sun." As an editor she was able to keep up with several of the members of our class.
She said that Irma Edmonson after teaching gym for many years died suddenly while
in a "Dance of the Raindrops." She reported that Cleave Shore debated the greater
part of her life over whether 'twas nobler to sew or to study, finally giving the
weight of the majority to sewing.
I was glad to have found out such news since I couldn't possibly hope to see every
one. In fact, I didn't know whether they were all awaiting their call in that happy place
or not. It was not long after I left Katherine before I found a pleasant spot to rest in
It was the natural glen very appropriately arranged for rest. As I entered I heard a
lovely voice lifted in song. Where had I heard that voice before? Yes. in St. Mary's!
There was Mary Margaret Willis who. in spite of the "family parish priest." was still
depending for a livelihood on singing. I talked with her and enjoyed recalling the
"good old days." However, my time w r as short so I retired asking to be awakened rather
I was aroused by the sun streaming in the window. Yet it seemed as if the light
were stronger than the sun. I looked out of my window and beheld in the sky, almost
shadowing the sun, Margaret Bullitt's face and hair. Yes, it seems that Margaret would
always be brilliant — even outshining the sun.
My day had begun all right after having seen Margaret. I started out on my journey
at once as I had only two days of grace.
The patlPrhaf T followed led me through a small wooded plot. In the center there
seemed to be a natural arbor under which a queen should sit. I looked closely to see
who was sitting there and was overjoyed to see Sallie Leinster. Dot Dougherty, and
Margaret Ellen Lester. But gracious, there was no chance of my speaking to them
for they were still trying to make their selection between their many suitors.
Although disappointed at this, I walked on until I saw in the distance a lovely vallev

A Legend of the Pines
EAST Carolina abounds in folk lore. There are Mauteo, Ocracoke and stormy
Hatteras around which have grown up strange tales of the early settlers.
Equally strange, although perhaps nol so widely known, is the story of the hoof-
prints which have remained impressed in the earth for over two hundred years.
About three miles from the banks of the Pamlico River, just off a tiny winding
road leading to the county seat of Beaufort, one finds them, two shallow depressions,
indentations about a yard apart in the midst of the long leaf pine. A path leads
to them from the road — a path worn by the feet of the many natives am!
tourists who visit the spot in a vain attempt to obliterate the prints. Both scientists
and geologists have endeavored, and failed to explain this phenomenon.
1 1 was the time of the early settlement of Xorth Carolina. Along the shores
of Pamlico and inland, here and there, were scattered rude farms connected by
rough roads — the beginnings of a settlement. Here and there a house and a
store, all unpainted pine affairs, communities dreary and desolate. Upon a clear-
ing, near the settlement, stood a tiny, unpretentious chapel, bare alike of beauty
or comfort, but the heart and soul of the toiling pioneers, the stern, hardy
foundations of our present civilization. Such was the Zion meeting house and
such was the character of its members.
The pines round about the small white chapel blent their whispering with the
earnest prayers of the group of settlers within. Save for this sound all preserved
the Sabbath calm. These people wrestled uncomplainingly with the Carolina
soil on six days of the week, but mi the seventh — in every heart was written —
"Remember thou keep holy the Sabbath day." Within the chapel the minister,
an old man broken by the rigors of his hard life yet still fired by the Spirit,
exhorted his tiny flock to win the eternal blessings of the Heavenly Country —
another new land, but free from the privations and hardships of this one.
Among the soberly dressed group of work-worn men and women, of children
drowsy by the lengthy discourse and the sultry heat of the summer afternoon,
there was one, Judith Wadsworth, in somber black, who seemed by all outward
appearances to have nothing in common with those around her. The settlers
knew nothing of her save that she had come from England with her father and
one servant, and together they had built a home not more than three months
before the death of the old gentleman. After his death Judith continued to
live in the cabin with only the quiet servant for a companion. She did not seem
to lack money. It was whispered that in England her father had owned large
estates. Nor would she have lacked friends, but she seemed to shrink from
them like a hunted thing and repelled all advances, so that settlers bad at length
discontinued their efforts in order that the Great Healer. Time, alone might
assuage her grief. The reason why she bad ever come to these Carolina wilder-
nesses or why, since now she was alone in them, she did not go back to the
Mother Country, was shrouded in mystery. To the queries of the curious her
father had always returned the most noncommittal answers; his daughter repelled
any such questions before they were uttered.
Our Unnilrt'd Twenty-eight
Today, as she sat in the back of the rude meeting house she wondered idly what
these reverent pioneers would have said could they have had access to her innermost
thoughts. Never again would she be allowed to enter into this house of worship —
of that she was sure. Perhaps, a despised thing, she would be sent from this
region altogether. Judith glanced curiously over the congregation. They under-
stand her former life? Perish the thought!
The sermon Has at an end. Now the minister was sending up a prayer of
thanksgiving for the safe voyage of the ship just arrived from England.
Turning toward the open doorway through which the sunlight poured like, molten
gold, Judith chanced to espy two figures far down flic hut sandy road, two persons
on horseback coming quickly nearer. She wondered who they might be. Every
able-bodied settler round about was in the chapel. Could it be that these strangers
brought bad news from the settlers farther down the river? Such thoughts
thronged her lira in as the riders steadily galloped onward. Then she remembered
the ship at anchor in the river. Of course, these must be two of the new arrivals.
They came frequently now, nun seeking adventure, or a means of retrieving
fallen fortune. Quite suddenly the realization was forced on her that if the
number of newcomers should increase she must needs seek an even more secluded
place. No one should ever know — and then — she saw him ! Rupert, as darkly
handsome as formerly, yet with bloodshot wild eyes as she had seen him only on
one memorable oecassion. The door of the church shielded her from his sight,
as with a pale, slight youth he drew near, almost up to the steps of the rustic
chapel. The sweating horses snorted and tossed their heads at the restraint of
Judith felt as if the room were whirling about her. Her heart throbbed wildly.
Her face, became corpselike in its pallor as she shrank back against the rough hewn
pew. "O God ! they could not intend to come in ! Why had she thought she
could ever mingle among people without dread of discovery — even in a house of
prayer! There was no escape. Her secret would be wrenched mercilessly from
Attracted against her will, she glanced again through the doorway. The two
riders were in the midst of a dispute. That they were both reeling drunk was
plainly evident. Rupert's voice came loudly to her ears. "Damme ! a church !
a fine place this is o' Sundays. Where' d a man go for a glass of port or for
company after his own heart? Not here in this nest of long-faced Puritans whose
only amusement is hymn-singing !"
The pale youth gave a derisive laugh — "Lord ! Ami that nag you're on could
well make you feel that way. No wonder y' made excuse to draw rein here in the
shade. Run him longer and he'd drop in his tracks. A fine figure ye cut, indeed!"
"Egad ! ye are a great one to laugh — I'll warrant this horse would leave yours
far behind in a matched race. The tall pine yonder as a goal, ('mm — ."
He was interrupted by a commotion at the door of the chapel. Hurtling down
the steps came Tim Alligood, rawboned, active. On he came, followed closely, by
several of the younger youths welcoming this opportunity for an escape from the>
rigid confinement of the chapel and scenting, in this, chance for sport. Lurching
in their saddles the drunkards shouted at them a torrent of abuse. The horses, 5 '
startled by the noise, tossed their manes and pawed at the earth.
One Hundred Tw.enttOnine
t 1 ' te?~- I
i. -"'a :
Tim grasped the bridle of the swarthy man's horse. "Can't you see there's
a service going- on in the chapel?" he demanded hotly. "Clear away from here,
you two, and do it quick! This ain't the place for a race either. Such as you,
England would do well to keep home. We don't like your type here!"
Rupert, thus checked, flamed with anger. With a loud oath he turned his
horse so sharply that the rein was torn from Tim's hand. The horseman over
his shoulder called out to his younger companion, who had half turned his horse
towards the roadway. What he said was unintelligible to the native men and
boys, but it had the effect of the lash of a whip on the younger rider. He whirled
his horse and came furiously toward Rupert. "I'll race you, yes, but with
God as a witness you'll take back those words or you'll settle with me later."
From where she sat, Judith alone could plainly see how deftly the two riders
evaded the grasp of the backwoodsmen and had lashed their horses into a furious
pace. Within the chapel, somehow the minister was ending the service. She
did not heed him. Irresistibly she was watching the rapid progress of the thick-
set older man. He was drawing ahead of the youth. His drunken excited
shouts were borne hack to her. She could not keep her eyes away from that
swaying horseman — and how she hated him !
Suddenly a piercing shriek ran out through the chapel. The horse in the
lead had come within a yard of the tall, stately pine and more abruptly than the
eye could follow had stopped short, his hoofs spraddled far apart and by the
unexpected impetus had hurled the rider headlong directly in front of the tree.
The body struck the trunk with a sickening thud. It fell, sprawled incongruously
at the tree's roots. The blood spurted from the neck where the head dangled
After that one cry, Judith became strangely still. She did not appear to notice
the group gathering around that prostrate form, nor the outpouring of the con-
gregation to the fateful spot. The shadows lengthened, yet she sat immovable as
a statue. So he was dead and the secret would be locked in her heart safe forever.
She stole from the meeting house; never again was she to enter its doors. Tin'
last curious loiterer had taken himself home. There was no human being within
sight. Cautiously she crept to the base of the pine. Perhaps there she might find
something, however small — . In the last light of the dying day she closely
scrutinized the turn. There was not the slightest trace of the tragedy save for
the trampled appearance of the ground. Yet — wait — A yard from the tree two
deep indentations just beneath a low spreading bush which undoubtedly had
protected them from obliteration by the feet of the curious throng. Two hoof-
prints — all.
And the pines 'round about caught the half-mad whisper — "Forever — in lasting
remembrance — never to be erased !" She knelt down and fiendishly hollowed out
the loose dirt, deepening the imprint. When she had finished, she startled the
wood with a hoarse grating cry, more befitting a witch than a woman in the
prime of life. Then rocking back and forth she crooned over and over — "never-
The spot became for a few days after the fatal ride a mecca for the curious.
It was not until after a severe summer storm a fortnight later that a group of lads
reacting the incident for their personal satisfaction, uprooted accidentally the
<>«<■ Hundred THrhi
tiny hush and found underneath the two hoofprints seemingly untouched by the
torrents of rain. The scraggy bush could not have protected them to such a degree,
and the boys scattered forthwith throughout the settlement the uncanny tale. It
was regarded as a boyish prank and the story was little believed until on passing
the spot the next Sunday, Tim Alligood and the minister saw with their own eyes
the bare impressions. They stooped and half sheepishly filled the hollows with
handfuls of dried mosses and pine cones. The next day on passing the tree
the minister found the shallow pits absolutely empty of the debris. When this
was noised abroad, there grew up for the villagers a sort of fascination about
the spot, and many were the ways attempted by which the tracks might he
obliterated. All were equally futile. The morning after would reveal the tracks,
two empty shallow hollows in the earth. At one time curiosity and interest were
so aroused that watchers were set, but ever skillfully, with the craft of a crazed
woman the slim, black robed Judith evaded their vigilance. The following day
the tracks were as evident as on that first Sunday.
Judith herself from the day of the accident never came in contact with the
people of the settlement. Her tiny cabin, set apart from the general cluster of
buildings, was shared only with the woman who had come with her from England —
a creature almost as ghostly and retiring as her mistress. Together they lived
a mysterious existence — the silent woman the only go-between with the outside
world. Men shunned her abode as they would that of the Evil one himself. Her
life was the subject for endless conjectures, all to no purpose. As time went on
her name was used to terrify children, and by the very mystery of her they were
silently awed into obedience.
Not during her lifetime did the settlers connect Judith with the tragedy at the
foot of the pine. This was revealed only when, years later, the servant woman
one cold, stormy morning came beating excitedly on the door of the nearest house
and, in answer to her wild summons, a searching party hastily organized and went
to scour the bleak woods. They found a gray, misshapen hag — the woman who had
been Judith Wadsworth — bent rigid in death over the hoofprints at the foot
of the pine.
The two hoofprints still remain. Natives and strangers alike have dug up
and filled, in turn, the depressions for over two centuries. Returning on tin'
morrow all have found the tracks as distinct and visible as before. The tall pine
lias long since gone to decay, the white chapel has been torndown. Yet there tie'
footprints are to this day firmly imbedded in the earth. Since the death of Judith
Wadsworth no grass has grown within three feet of the tracks, and the natives say
and believe that the spirit of that lonely woman returns every night to the blighted
spot, and with ghostly talons lays bare the only earthly token of her sin.

Winning Poem in Lnter-society Contest
npilE light dies out behind the western hills;
-*- The clouds that were gold and rose just now, are gray ;
The mist creeps slowly up the river road;
The hills are black as the colors fade away.
The sun is set.
One baby star peeps over the silver edge
Of the crescent, moon that hangs in the saffron west;
The tree frogs sing in the dark of the big pine tree;
A sleepy bird flies slowly home to its nest.
The world is still.
The shadows steal from the dusk of the whispering woods;
The fireflies dance in the fields of ripening corn;
The sheep bell tinkles its homeward tune ;
The noise and bustle of work is hushed and gone.
For night brings rest.

That we are always made to pay,
For offences no more awful.

They are never called to judgment
For the naughty things they do;
And we think that our dear teachers,

When they'll get what they deserve.

GIRLS IN PURSUIT
The search for knowl-

gently carried out else-

pursued by one hundred
and sixty-five girls at St.

were interviewed and all
report the search as ex-
ceedingly dull, interest in-
creases around the 20th of
January and May and
wanes around Christmas
and the Ides of March so
the girls say. The Senior
Class believe they have
nearly succeeded in the
search, most of them re-
porting that they intend to
discontinue it the first of
June. A few plan, how-
ever, to search and re-

Wir.r. Peevknt Charleston
The Dean of St. Mary's
School spoke forcibly this
morning on the subject of
St. Mary's girls dancing
the Charleston. Losing
their dignity and several
pounds. Drastic methods
have been taken to prevent
any recurrence of the
Charleston in the school
parlors; such methods
were necessary for the
morals of the girls as well
as the pictures on the
walls. The Dean further
added that two girls had
been seen with ear-rings
on. The severity of her
tone and her seeming dis-
pleasure served to impress
the girls that young ladies
neither Charleston nor
wear ear-rings. "Would
you chew gum or roll your
hose?" asked the Dean in

man to a hurried traveler

Once long ago, I did my wickedest deed. I went to
market and bought a pencil from a blind beggar and put a
nickel in the cup. Suddenly it looked to me that the beggar
bad an awful pile of money so I took out a "quarter — and
immediately spent it in riotous liying. My richness aroused
Mother's suspicion so she inquired and inquired until in
tears I confessed. So the next market day yery humbly
indeed I went to the blind man and returned to him (accord-

I humbly apologized but the blind man snatched the quarters
and said — "You nasty little thief 1"

With water full we tilled them — then right

We dropped some drops upon Ann's face;
She started from her slumber.
Upright she kneeled with sudden grace
And prayed in tones of thunder I

She gave a leap; she gave a yell
And roused the house to bear her wail.

This year we have Miss Fenner to thank, not only for her help as instructor of

We appreciate the interest shown by our advertisers and trust the results will

COAL BY WIRE
Even in this age of miracles, people would hardly credit
the assertion if they were told that invisible coal and
water are being delivered by wire.
Yet that is exactly what this and every other public
utility in the nation is doing every hour of the day and
It requires millions of tons of coal and millions of
gallons of water to generate the electricity which pro-
vides light or drives the motors of industry. Invisible
coal also is transported in pipes when gas is used.
In hundreds of other ways the utilities invisibly serve
their customers, cheaper and better than they could
